Place 72 – Day 7: Vancouver, BC – First NHL Game!

Haircut

We left pretty early in the morning and walked for about 25 minutes to the hairdresser which Kim was getting her haircut at.

Kim had her hair cut, which took about 45 minutes.

Curtis had a free coffee whilst he waited, too!

Home Time

We walked back home to the apartment and chilled out whilst we waited for our friend to arrive!

A Bar

Our friend arrived and we walked for 20 minutes down to a bar to get some food and drinks.

The bar had free wings, providing you purchase a beer.

We had sweet and spicy wings as well as Guinness BBQ wings.

We sat there until 17:00 and then walked to the ice rink.

Leafs Game!

We got to the area and walked in. When we got in, we just walked around and checked out what they had.

We got to our seats and watched the warm up and then waited for the game to start.

We watched the light show, which was pretty good!

The Leafs went up by 2, after the 2nd period, but lost in overtime. The game was great fun! We had an amazing time and loved the atmosphere. There was about 70/30 Leafs fans, considering we were in Vancouver.

Post Game

We went for a drink at a bar about 15 minutes walk from the area, and it was snowing!

We got a drink here and then we met some of Brodie’s friends and they had a drink.

We walked back to the apartment via the supermarket and got some garlic bread.

We got back and chatted whilst we ate potato smilies, chicken and garlic bread, then it was time to sleep.


This Time Last Year!

Place 70 – Day 10: Victoria, BC – Chinatown, Dumplings & Saturday Night Hockey

We were actually up earlier this morning, for once, but the weather wasn’t appreciated.

There were huge winds, making the windows shake! There was a small flurry of slow, but nothing crazy.

We got a lot of bookings sorted and then rewarded ourselves with a walk down to Chinatown, in the freezing cold!

The weather, including the wind chill, felt like -10°C, which is definitely did! We were getting blown all over the place by the 60kph winds!

We walked to Chinatown and took a look at all restaurants to see if there was any place selling dumplings.

We found a restaurant which we stopped in and ordered some dumplings and gyoza.

We were given some green tea too, which was warm but neither of us like tea so we didn’t really drink that. That being said, the food was pretty good!

We left here and went right to Starbucks to get a hot chocolate each and warm up.

We stopped off to get some shower gel and then went back to the apartment.

We got some more things booked and then watched the Leafs game which went to overtime with a Leafs win!

We had chicken and vegetables for dinner and then we watched the Vancouver Canucks game until bed time!

This time last year!
